A NEW Milton drug-dealer has been jailed for two-and-a-half years after officers raided his home and uncovered a stash of cocaine and cannabis.

Jack Fry (22), of Gore Road, was sentenced at Southampton Crown Court after pleading guilty to two charges of possession with intent to supply class A and B drugs.

Fry was arrested on 22nd May last year after specialist officers from the New Milton neighbourhood team executed a pre-planned warrant at his address.

The court heard how quantities of cocaine and cannabis were discovered by police in an upstairs bedroom which was occupied by Fry at the time.

Items related to drug-dealing paraphernalia as well as cash were also seized during the raid.

Insp. Mike Minnock said: “This is a fantastic result following a prolonged operation, which was built around information provided to us by the local community and intelligence gathered from specialist teams.

“The local neighbourhood team continue to ensure New Milton is a hostile environment for drug dealers to operate. We are wholeheartedly committed to preventing and reducing the harm committed as a result of drug-related activity and criminality.

“This protracted investigation involved a number of specialist resources and investigators – culminating in a significant custodial sentence – something which we are pleased about.

He added: “We will continue to keep up the pressure on those known locally to us as being involved in drug-related activity.

“Anyone who suspects that drug-related activity may be taking place in their local neighbourhood is asked to contact us by using our online reporting portal or calling 101.

“Every call you make helps us to build a strong intelligence picture and enables us to take positive action and bring offenders to justice.”

The vocabulary used to describe the quantity of drugs found by police was amended on 16th December 2020.
